Before we move on to the motherboards themselves, let’s take a closer look at some features of the B760 chipset and B760 motherboards from MSI.

Exceptional Compatibility

Both 12th and 13th Gen Intel CPUs Supported

Like its elder sibling, Z790, the B760 chipset also supports both 12th and 13th Generation Intel processors out of the box. No BIOS updates needed.

Both DDR5 and DDR4 Options Available

Thanks to Intel’s support for both DDR4 and DDR5 memory, B760 motherboards will offer DDR4 as well as DDR5 variants. Not only does this allow gamers on a budget to shave costs wherever possible, but it also leaves the door open for power users and gamers who want a next-gen system that’s DDR5 ready.

Powerful Scalability

PCIe Gen 5.0 Support

The support for PCIe 5.0 on the B760 chipset brings next-gen PCIe bandwidth to the mainstream. Every MSI B760 Gaming Motherboard will come equipped with a Lightning Gen 5 PCIe slot for your graphics card. You can rest assured that you’re getting the absolute most out of your current GPU, while ensuring enough headway for your upgrade down the line!

Max PCIe 4.0 Lanes Bumped to 10

While the last-gen B660 chipset was limited to 6 lanes, B760 takes it up a notch with 10 PCIe lanes. For motherboards, this means additional I/O – from more M.2 slots to high-speed USB ports.

Up to 3x Gen 4 M.2 Slots

Thanks to the additional PCIe 4.0 lanes, B760 motherboards can now accommodate up to three PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs. This level of expandability allows you to keep all your favorite games on your SSDs, rather than reluctantly picking some to be relegated to slower hard drives because you ran out of storage space and slots.

SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps Type-C Ports

All MAG B760 motherboards have adopted the Lightning USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 port that allows for blazing-fast transfer speeds of up to 20Gbps! The rear I/O Type-C port can now become a hub for your…well, hub or an interface to connect your fastest (or high-bandwidth) peripherals.

High-Speed Wired and Wireless Networking

Connectivity is now a critical facet of both work and play. Whether you’re gaming, studying, or working, faster and more stable networking help you get things done faster. MSI’s B760 Gaming motherboards now come equipped with lightning-fast wired and wireless networking connectivity – 2.5G LAN and Wi-Fi 6E.

Unmatched Stability

Up to 12+1+1 Duet Rail Power System (DRPS) and 90A DrMOS

Although B760 motherboards are more affordable than their Z790 counterparts, ensuring stability for even the best processors in Intel’s 12th and 13th Generation lineup is critical. MSI B760 motherboards now come equipped with robust power delivery components to ensure unmatched stability for even the most powerful Intel processors on the market.

Up to 8-Layer Server Grade PCB with 2oz Copper Traces

Reliable signal transmission is helped by thicker copper traces as well as a thicker PCB. Our B760 motherboards now boast up to an 8-layer server-grade PCB and 2oz Copper traces – allowing for higher bandwidth and faster transfer speeds at lower temperatures.

More compact form factor PCs like ITX builds are a fun challenge for gamers and creators alike. With the right pick of hardware, you can build some pretty powerful PCs in a relatively tiny form factor!

The MPG B760I EDGE WIFI is designed to be the centerpiece of a gaming/productivity monster. It adopts a sleek silver-white look with eye-catching patterns peppered across the board and a mix of top-notch components and premium build materials for high-end performance without compromise.

Like other premium B760 motherboards in the MPG lineup, the B760I EDGE WIFI is equipped with 8+1+1 Direct Phases and a 90A DrMOS to power even the best Intel Raptor Lake (or Alder Lake) processors without breaking a sweat.

You can rest easy knowing that you can slot in next-gen GPUs without holding them back, thanks to the included Lightning Gen 5 Slot (PCIe 5.0 x16). Even on this compact ITX motherboard, you’ll have access to two Gen 4 M.2 slots, one of which is equipped with a Shield Frozr heatsink.

The MPG B760I EDGE WIFI also offers high-speed networking (wired and wireless) with onboard Wi-Fi 6E and 2.5G LAN.



The Tomahawk name is pretty much synonymous with bang-for-buck at this point, with a string of popular products that gamers and creators have loved! It’s now back with a B760 chipset and support for Intel’s latest and greatest CPUs as the MAG B760 TOMAHAWK WIFI.

It features a 12+1+1 Phase DRPS with 75A DrMOS for a robust power delivery that can tame even the best Intel processors and unlock their true potential.

Like many of our other B760 motherboards, the MAG B760 TOMAHAWK WIFI also boasts a Lightning Gen 5 PCIe slot – allowing you to upgrade to next-gen GPUs without giving up any performance. Thanks to its full ATX form factor, you can enjoy excellent storage expandability with up to three high-speed M.2 connectors equipped with Shield Frozr heatsink.

The rear I/O features a Lightning USB 20G Type-C to support your fastest external devices. We’ve also added high-speed wired and wireless networking to the TOMAHAWK with onboard 2.5G LAN and Intel Wi-Fi 6E support.



Much like the Tomahawk, the Mortar is popular among gamers and creators looking for value-oriented Micro-ATX motherboards. The MAG B760M MORTAR MAX WIFI brings back everything you love about the MORTAR and improves on it in spades!

An extended heatsink design is tasked with keeping the 12+1+1 Phase DRPS with 75A DrMOS cool even while delivering all the power your Intel CPU might need.

One feature that sets the B760M MORTAR MAX WIFI apart from its other MSI B760 counterparts is access to OC Engine. The OC Engine leverages a dedicated clock generator to unlock more performance out of ALL Intel CPUs on even the B760 platform.

Like other gaming B760 motherboards, you’ll find a Lightning Gen 5 PCIe slot (PCIe 5.0 x16) – ready for current and next-gen graphics without holding them back. Even in its Micro-ATX form factor, we’ve added two M.2 connectors with Shield Frozr heatsink for ample high-speed storage expansion if/when you need it.

Yes, and you guessed it – the MAG B760M MORTAR MAX WIFI also boasts both onboard 2.5G LAN and Intel Wi-Fi 6E for top-notch wired and wireless networking performance. The rear I/O features a good selection of ports, one of which is a Lightning USB 20G Type-C that’ll allow you to interface with the fastest peripherals you own at blazing-fast 20Gbps speeds.
